John Wine Snob says:
When I opened the bottle of Argentinean Aconga Bondara-Merlot 2011 ($7.99) at Safeway it was like I walked in and caught it naked. It screamed an irritating screech that made me think, “Oh come on. Do you think you have something I haven’t seen before?” I took a swallow and it was bitter and prudish so I let it breathe a while to coax it out of its shyness. To my surprise it started to be come quite coquettish after about a half hour. It became smooth and silky and sultry and even a little chocolatey.
I think it likes me. It is not the greatest wine, but I let it dance for me and then we parted as friends. The weird thing is that I must confess, I had never heard of a Bondara before. When I looked it up I got a lot of results that included a sex toy company. That sure makes sense. It would be a perfect bordello wine. I will give this teaser three stars.
